Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” extends the #1 run into its seventh week
Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” has extended its No. 1 run on the Billboard 200 albums chart and is at the top for the seventh straight year. Since debuting in May, the set hasn’t dropped below No. 2 — although it’s possible that Beyoncé’s July 29 debut of “Renaissance” could disrupt the reign, as all six of her previous solo studio efforts opened at No. 1 .
Until we see this duel on the August 13th chart, Bad Bunny continues his winning streak of earning over 100,000 units in the first 11 weeks on the chart. According to Billboard, the album’s latest tracking data shows that “Un Verano Sin Ti” has hit 98,000 album equivalent units — the first time in its 11-week run that it has fallen below 100,000 units.
But with a seventh week at the top of the chart from Aug. 6, Un Verano Sin Ti becomes the album with the most weeks at No. 1 in a one-year span — an achievement since Morgan Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album” in May March 2021. On the charts this week, Wallen’s “Dangerous” rises from 4 to 2 with 49,000 earned equivalent album units, while Harry Styles’ former No. 1 “Harry’s House” remains at No. 3 with 48,000 units. With only a slight difference in earned units, Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album” just surpasses “Harry’s House” at #2.
Though Lizzo’s “Special” gave the pop singer her highest album chart score ever last week – the set slipped from #2 to #7 in its second week with 29,000 units. However, Lizzo is also celebrating #1 on the Hot 100 chart, with “About Damn Time” replacing Style’s former 10-week holder “As It Was” – which is now at #2.
Entering the album charts, Seventeen hit their second top 10 charting album of 2022 with Sector 17. The 13-track album – the South Korean boy band’s most successful album to date – is a repackaged version of their fourth studio album Face the Sun. It debuts at number 4 on the charts with 34,000 earned equivalent album units. Future’s “I Never Liked You” climbs to 6-5 with 33,000 album units earned and Drake’s dance-focused “Honestly, Nevermind” slips from 5 to 6 with 32,000 album units earned.
Lil Durk’s former #1 7220 jumps from 10 to 8 with 28,000 units, while Jack White racks up his sixth solo Top 10 album (his second of 2022 after Fear of the Dawn), while Entering Heaven Alive” debuted at #1. 9. The singer’s fifth studio album starts with 27,000 earned equivalent album units. At the bottom of the top 10 albums is “Sour” by Olivia Rodrigo, which climbed from #13 to #10 with 26,000 album units earned.
On the song chart, Kate Bush’s 1985 classic, Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God), holds its Netflix-fueled peak at No. 3 – a resurgence spearheaded by its voice acting in Season 4 of Stranger Things. Jack Harlow’s “First Class” remains at No. 4 after spending three weeks at the summit, and Future’s former No. 1 “Wait for U” with Drake and Tems is similarly unmoved at No. 5.
Following the debut of Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” on July 29, the album’s first single “Break My Soul” reached a new #6 on the song charts. Styles’ “Late Night Talking” also rose from a 9 to a 7, thanks largely to the premiere of the accompanying official music video, which premiered on July 13. Concurrently, Post Malone’s “I Like You (A Happier Song)” with Doja Cat went from 12 to 9 after the music video premiered on July 25.
Rounding out the song list is Bad Bunny and Chencho Corleone’s “Me Porto Bonito,” which has dropped from its original No. 6 at No. 8, and Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” lands at No. 10. For those who want to keep track “Heat Waves” marks its 80th week on the chart this week – marking the third single in chart history to reach this milestone. As Billboard points out, it’s the only song to have made the top 10 in its 80th week on the chart.
